It’s been a tough week for Woodinville as an intense snow storm transitioned into an ice storm causing the region to come to a near standstill. As temperatures slowly rise Friday, thawing the ice and snow, Patch wants to know what areas are still without power.
There are still pockets of Woodinville without power, even as the temperatures warm up and melt the snow that caused most of the outages. In many cases around Woodinville, the outages were caused by tees falling on the power lines, or the weight of the ice on a line causing it to break.
Still, Puget Sound Energy reports there are 1,959 customers without power Friday morning, Jan. 20. For those Woodinville residents living just over the line in Snohomish County, the public utility district says 16,000 customers with power as of 9 a.m., mostly in the north and east areas of the county.
Both PSE and SNPUD websites remind people not to approach a downed power line; the line can still produce enough electricity to prove fatal to anyone who touches it. If you see a downed line, call PSE at 1-888-225-5773 and SNPUD at 425-783-1001.
